Well now they seem to be about ten minutes apart so I guess that means they are slacking off?

Mine didn't get closer than 10 minutes in between . Ever.
i just had two more painful (but not too painful) ones 20ish seconds long...10 minutes apart. and now one more as i am typing about 16 minutes after the last one. is it time to go in? or do i just stay in bed and stop doing chores?...another sharp vagina pain just happened ( i think those hurt more than the contractions but are much quicker at like 10 seconds) please help...trying not to freak out DF isnt home and he's so much better at the contraction thing than me!
How far apart should ur contractions be? I have been having contractions every time I use bathroom and sometimes when I stand or walk around to much but my OB said that's normal. Well I am already 2 cm as of Monday but ten min ago when I used the bathroom I cramped for a min and then my back started to hurt bab for like 3-4 min. Is this a contraction?
well,i been having contractions well i think tthey are contractions about every ten mins, but its just been intense pain in my lower back, what should i do?
Why they sent me home I dont know. Im still having contractions every ten minutes apart. They got stronger this morning. They told me not to come in til they are 2-3 mins apart since Im so far along.
I was told before 33 or 36 weeks (can't remember which) to come in if they were ten minutes apart and after 36 weeks when they are 3-5 min apart. If you're only 25.6 weeks, and you're having more than four an hour, I'd go get checked, and stay off your feet as much as possible. I was working a lot of hours as a waitress, always on my feet, that's why I had so many, I got my hours cut back to four a day at twenty five weeks, and I was supposed to take breaks and sit every so often.
My new midwife told me theother day that it's okay if I have about 20 a day because that's what on average I get but if they hurt and are ten minutes apart to go in! It's not just me either ladies, I checked with all my friends and theirs were not painful either....are you all sure this isn't ligament pain??
keep timing your contractions, and let your OB know when they get down to about 5 minutes apart on a regular basis, your water breaks or you lose your mucus plug. good luck to you... sounds like you will be holding your beautiful baby before you know it!
Sounds like contractions to me as a rule of thumb they say to wait until they are ten minutes apart and uncomfortable enough you cannot talk through them or your water breaks
Not dialated, but when I went in today the machine was reading the contractions about every ten minutes and of course I have been in tears all day because I am hurting. And my blood pressure was 172/88 which is really high for me. So finally he gave me procardia and is having me come back in Tuesday to see if it helps. Unless my contractions get 7 min apart or less of course. I mean I have been having contractions since 15 weeks, very strong contractions since 30 weeks and now 32 weeks. FINALLY!
so idk.. everyones contractions are different!
everytime I stand up or move alot I have a few contractions, spaced out pretty good but there still there. A few minutes ago I had two that were three minutes apart and lasted alot longer than the others have and had another one four minutes later just a second ago. They aren't painful but I can definitely tell their happening because my whole stomach gets rock hard and its shape even looks different, just like the ones last night when I was on the monitors.
I think your suppose to call your doctor when they are 15-20 minutes apart..I was 15 days late with my 1st one. Definitely don't rush it baby will come when it's ready..
If they get to be about 8-10 minutes apart call the doc....if they get to be 5-7 minutes apart go to labor and delivery. Oh wait I see the last you updated your page you were 37 weeks so if you DO go into full blown labor now the baby should be just fine :) Keep an eye out for other signs....if you start feeling crampy like diarhea crampy or actually HAVING diarhea or loose stools that can be a sign. Watch for any red tinged mucus when you go to the bathroom...
then rushed to the ER (I was told to come in if they were 10 min apart) only to find out that BH contractions can actually feel like REAL labor contractions, and to have them conveniently go away right after I arrived. I still got checked out, and that stabbing pain, yeah...had that for at least six weeks. I heard it called a "dilation pinch". Don't know for sure what it was, but I do know it's quite uncomfortable...good luck!!
Try to eat or drink something. I was having contractions last night every ten minutes for about an hour and a half. I was excited but then I ate a PB&J sandwich with milk and they went away. In my childbirth class she told us if a change in routine stops them it's not real labor.
you will no, they told me ot go to the maternity ward if i was having contractions 6 in ten minutes, and it was very hard to tell because on the monitor it was not hiugh for contractions but i did not have alot in the front, i had them all in the back, back labor.
Did yalls contractions begin before your water broke? lgreen, that's what I worry about. Lol I am pretty in tune with my body but any severe pains I have randomly gotten so far in pregnancy I just kinda wait em out. I hate bugging anyone...

So I've been having contractions for about an hour now all 5-6 mind apart except two which were ten min apart, they hurt but not as bad as everyone said they would be they are maybe a 5 pain wise, should I wait longer or go to the hospital?
It's 6am and I'm still having contractions 3 minutes apart, but as of 2am i wasn't dilated. Now I'm waiting for the doctor to come check me when she does her rounds. Yum ice chips. They tell me to rest but how can i when I'm contacting every three minutes and am anxious to know if I'll see my little girl soon or not. Any ideas? Advice?
I went in Monday for contractions ten min apart and the gave me two brethine shots (worst experience ever). And today the midwife offered it but I only would take it if she could promise it would work this time and she couldn't so I didn't take it.
however today at about 9 they got close and were 7 minutes apart. Its now 12am and they are 6 minutes apart. 3 cm dilated..not sure what's going to happen next.
So the other day a woman woke up and her contractions we ten minutes apart. Her and her husband thought they had enough time so they took a shower and called grandma to take care of the other kid. By the time they got done her labor was so bad she couldn't walk to the car to her hubby put her on a sled to get her there.... instead her daughter was born right there, in the snow, on a sled!!!!!!!! Lol that is one birth story they will never forget!
There steady every ten minutes now.. when should I go to the hospital if this is it?
